Post How far forward is your steering box?

I'm running All Pros FJ80 hysteer kit and I have a major clearance problem between the tie rod and the pitman arm.

I moved the axle forward 3" and only run 3.5" of lift. The steering box is as far forward as I can get it without cutting into the body mount. It's tilted up as far as a could get it with All Pros upper weld on mount.

Is my only option to cut into the body mount and move the box further forward? I could tilt it up more but on full stuff there would still be interferance.

I know some of you have your axle at least 3" forward, what did you do?

I had cut into the mount on mine - but I ran a saginaw scout box now and the arm swings the other direction so the box actually sits where your shock mount is now <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">
